Passer domesticus

All these images were taken in my garden.

It used to be that my bird feeders were besieged by House Sparrows, especially during breeding times. Most of the houses on my estate had a sparrow’s nest or two under the eaves.

Over the years, this dropped off quite rapidly, and they are now quite rare visitors. I was surprised to learn that their numbers have dropped by around 50% since the mid-70s and are now on the Red List.
